unlock the "local area connection' of windows xp
Posted on 2004-09-21
I have a cable connection at home. Before I install wireless router, I am testing each connection to my desk top and notebook computers with wired connection through ethernet line.
My cable connection is working with my desktop computer with windows 2000 pro.
When I tried to connect with my notebook computer(windows xp pro running), the connection to internet was not established although local area connection is working.
I noticed that there's little lock icon over my local area connection icon. I think my local area connection is locked. How can I unlock so that it can automatically detect the IP address and get connected to internet?
